Tingly Games is launching a new set of Greeting Games specially for charity whereby senders will be able to give receivers custom charity cards through

Launching with two separate campaigns Tingly Games is supporting Just a Drop for World Water Day and SOS Children’s Villages for Mothers Day. Senders can personalise their cards by selecting from a range of different games such as Bubble Shooter, Mahjong, Jigsaw Puzzle and Sudoku. They can also add personal comments at the end of each level, set the difficulty level and include their Facebook avatar.

Ard Bonewald, CEO of Tingly Games, the parent of Greeting Games, said, “It is great for Tingly Games to be involved in the World Water Day initiative from Playmob. It gives us the opportunity to show our Greeting Games concept to a large audience while at the same time we help a charity organisation raise additional funds. Just a Drop and SOS Children’s Villages are just the first charities we are featuring on and you can expect many more to use Greeting Games as a fun way of spreading their important message.”

Once a charity card is purchased through Greeting Games, 60% of all revenue will be donated to the relevant charity. For every card purchased in aid of Just a Drop one child will have safe drinking water for up to 6 years and for every Mothers Day card bought via Greeting Games SOS Childrens Villages will provide one child with a home cooked meal.

“We are delighted to be working with Tingley Games. The idea of having a Mother’s Day card that supports SOS Children’s Villages fits perfectly with our unique concept of placing orphaned and abandoned children around the world under the care of an SOS mother in an SOS Children’s Village.”

The campaigns will run from the end March all the way through to April. Once signed up to buyers will be able to send up to two greeting games for free. They can then set up a subscription for as low as £1.69 per month within UK and Canada and EUR 1.69 in Europe.

The campaign has been supported by Give8-Bit and it’s parent company Playmob, a London based Tech company specialising in charitable fundraising through games.
